European Review: Peugeot 208 GTi

  The Peugeot 205 GTI is one of the legends of hot hatch history. It took off where the original VW Golf GTI started, with sufficient space and practicality, lots of speed and a reasonable price. And it was even more fun to drive. With about 120 horsepower and weighing under a ton, it was […]

Satellites duck one comet, while another looks like a Duck

High over southern hemisphere winter skies this last week the stage was set for two astonishing encounters with comets. One which has long been planned, is the European Space Agency’s Rosetta probe to periodical comet 67P Churyumov-Gerasimenko, which as the spacecraft’s cameras revealed is double barrelled in structure as well as name. Rosetta will rendezvous [...]

Gaza-Israel conflict: a chilling snapshot from space

A German astronaut with the European Space Agency is showing the world what the fighting between Gaza and Israel looks like from space. Alexander Gerst captured two very similar images recently from the International Space Station. They reveal city lights, but also explosions and missile or rocket trails streaming across the sky.

Belgian priest mathematician heads to space station –- in name only

Msgr. Georges Lemaitre, a Belgian mathematician who studied alongside leading scientists of the first half of the 20th century exploring the origins of the universe, is heading into space. Well, at least his name is. The European Space Agency has named the next supply mission to the International Space Station for the priest, who died […]

This week in science: space balls

This week the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft closed in on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and resolved this unusual shape. Its spinning fairly quickly and stretching around 3 miles across at the widest. Astronomers call it a binary comet, presumably made of two smaller objects that didn't quite finish merging an unknown time ago. Show More Summary

Rosetta spacecraft approaching twofold comet

As the European Space Agency's spacecraft Rosetta is slowly approaching its destination, comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, the comet is again proving to be full of surprises. New images obtained by OSIRIS, the onboard scientific imaging system, confirm the body's peculiar shape hinted at in earlier pictures. Comet 67P is obviously different from other comets visited so far.

Space Probe Chasing 'Rubber Duck' Comet

Space may have found itself a mascot: a double comet some say looks an awful lot like a giant rubber duck. The European Space Agency's Rosetta probe has been gaining on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko since reawakening this year, hoping to send a lander to its surface. Now that it's a bit...

Boy, this image of Comet 67P that was taken by the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft looks like something, but I can't put my finger on just butt it is. Err, what it is. Go check out some more details on the ESA website.

Rosetta’s Comet Looks Like a Rubber Ducky or Marshmallow Peep - Comet Churymov-Gerasimenko you're the one. You make bath time lots of fun.

2 weeks agoOdd : Geekosystem

The European Space Agency(ESA) got a closer look at Comet Churymov-Gerasimenko that their Rosetta spacecraft is approaching and discovered it's a contact binary – two differently-sized objects in close contact. That's an exciting discovery, but as UC Berkeley astronomer Alex Parker pointed out it looks like a rubber ducky and that's arguably more exciting.

Incredible time-lapse video shows Earth from 250 miles away

After 10 Years in Space, This Probe Is About to Catch a Comet

After a 4.3 billion-mile nonstop flight, Rosetta is about to reach its destination. The European Space Agency vehicle has spent a decade circling our solar system in pursuit of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. And to prepare for the trip, ESA tested and equipped the vessel for any cosmic curveballs it might encounter on the way.
